Anyone else up for sharing photos of boats? On the rivers, on the sea, on a lake, under way, moored up, even in dry dock. And, if that's all you've got, even in your bath...

Edit
Silly me. I left out canals. So, um... whatever floats your boat.

Yep! I'm up for that @garryknight, and here's my first contribution.

Just a simple Snapograph taken at Faversham Kent UK of the Bow of an old Barge that is now used for living in.
I've deliberately gone for a slightly higher contrast gritty look for this snap to emphasise the rust & decay etc.

Here's another slant on the very same boat that @gramps posted.

Just a simple Snapograph taken at Dungeness Romney Marsh Kent UK of one of the many discarded boats amongst many other things scattered about the beach that have just been discarded and left behind.
In the lower right of the snap you can see one of the old railway lines that were used for hauling the boats or catch up the beach.
I'm also working on a personal project called Things Left Behind and this will be one of the shots included.

Exmouth, view of the Exe Estuary with boats moored up


Exmouth again, three boats of the River Exe


Wimbleball Lake


Boat off to sea out of a village in Lofoten...which I can't remember what it is called!
That last pic looks stunning, I've always wanted to go to lofoten.

I'm pleased that this is turning into a popular thread! Here's a couple more from me. The first shows some Thames sailing barges moored up at Hermitage Moorings, a little way down the Thames from St Katherine Docks. Processed for atmosphere.

And the second shows a couple of fishing boats at Leigh-on-Sea. This one shows the rich colours brought out by the sunset hour.

This thread is making me realise how much I miss the sea. The first 40 years I would rarely go for a few months without being on a boat, or around boats, or just by the seaside.

Then I got married.
